Most Overrated NHL Players


The Top Ten

1 Sidney Crosby Sidney Crosby Sidney Patrick Crosby, ONS is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who serves as captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League.

The truth is that malkin is the real face of the penguins, Crosby is thought of as the best because he is a forst liner on a team malkin carries. I believe he is the dirtiest player. Ever see a penguins game with a call against the penguins? I haven't. Also, he is known for diving and embellishing, but when he does so, the other team gets the penalty, it's just not right and is a disgrace to hockey. I can't believe he is thought of as the best. He isn't even on the top 20 right now if you ask me. He is always getting injured, and that hurts the team when your captain is gone. It's time the fans take a stand against the overprivilaged penguins and noncalls. Thank you very much for your time and keep your head up out there.

He's not a good captain and he is also inconsistent. He doesn't step up when needed hence the playoffs. He has no killer instinct and whines about everything. I'm baffled he's considered the best in the world. He's good but he's too immature to ever make an impact in my opinion. He's andy Sandberg on ice.

He did score the overtime goal agianst those damned yankees but you have to admit that he is overrated though. He is not the greatest hockey player in the world. I would say Gretzky is. He would make Crosby look like a joke. But still though he is a great hockey player.

Crosby is skilled but he is way way overrated

So sorry, I posted that when he was good, but now I think he should just retire - SayJ123

Phaneuf is the leafs' best defenceman though, although he got traded - SayJ123

He can hit, but that is about it. -

Ovechkin leads the caps. Without ovi he would be nothing. People also think of his "15 goals in 15 seconds commercial." Any nhl player can do that. He's nothing

If you are betting your franchise on Ovechkin you are doomed. You have to have a team! That includes at least 2 SOLID lines, 2 good penalty kill lines, an all around line that will do whatever the coach asks, and most of all A HEART! GKG! To quote an NHL rule: Rule 13 Composition of Team
A Team shall be composed of 20 players (18 skaters and two goalkeepers as per Rule 15 (a)(c)(d) - Players in Uniform) who shall be under contract to the Club they represent.

So many assits but no goals. And most of those assits r from the great 8.

Thorton hade 92 assists that's why cheechoo did good you can't not be great on a line with one of the best passers in the league

Yeah, a lot of people say Cheechoo was good thanks to Thorton. Couldn't agree more.

People STILL expect good seasons out of him. But this just shows how AWESOME Thornton is. - booklover1

One good season thanks to Joe Thornton. All over for him now though. -

10 Alexander Ovechkin Alexander Ovechkin Alexander Mikhailovich "Alex" Ovechkin is a Russian professional ice hockey winger and captain of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League.

He stands in one spot and shoots. He's a cherry picker and never passes off. He does have a cannon, but that's it. He is one dimensional. I'll take Sidney Crosby any day.

He's not even the top 100 greatest NHL players of all time
